Angry old man

I've been thinking about a lot of different things. I don't want to just use bicycle log as a place to voice my complaints, and I don't want to become this angry old man who just complains about everything.

On the other hand..

It's hard to find good content. On TV. On the radio, and on the internet.. I realize that's a sentence fragment..

It's hard to find a good blog actually. And after you find one they seem to go away. Like Dating Drama and My Dog. That was a great blog and now it's gone. Or you'll find a good blog and you'll get to liking that person and they will lock the blog or something.. Or they'll say,. "I'm done blogging but you can find me on Facebook"..

I've been thinking about Facebook. Just one of the things I've been thinking about.. I multi-think actually.. I think they ought to have friends on Facebook, but also have a website for enemies.. You could have a wall to just argue with your enemies on.. They could call it Sh**list or something.

And what about those people who don't show their face on their "facebook" page.. ? What's up with them? That's something I'd do..

I've been thinking how much I don't like the new Yahoo page. I don't know.. I just can't like a page that presents me with a big grey box on the screen that tells me that I might like something else.. What were they thinking when they came up with that? I've even had better ideas than that.. Like bringing back the Hitler moustache...

Well I can't grow a moustache.. I can but it makes me look like I've forgotten to shave.

But here's the really exciting thing that I've been buiding up to in this post. We've all heard about how great duct tape is.. I have a friend who has written an unpublished book on all of the things you can use it for. Several months ago I got a sliver in my finger. My fourth finger on my left hand. My angry old man finger. Right on the tip. The sliver went straight in and I coudln't get it out. It hurt for about a week. I thought it would disolve or something, but it turned into a wart. I'm not sure if it's really a wart but that's the only way I can describe it. It was really bothering me plus it was making it hard to play guitar. I can't afford to go to the doctor with this because I have a thirty thousand dollar deductable on my insurance and no doubt they'd use it to deny me coverage in the future.

So out of desperation I decided to try duct tape on it. It seems to be working. I've had the duct tape on it for three days now and no question, there's been a big improvement! I'd say it's half the size that it was. I was going to photograph it to document the progress but I decided not to as it's kind of disgusting.

Ok so I had to remove the part about this girl's boyfriend's back video. Didn't meet my decency standards, and people might have gotten the wrong idea.

Lol. You're funny Don. I'm sorry, I don't mean to laugh at your pain but you made me chuckle, you "angry old man". You kind of reminded me of myself. Thoughts all over the place. Don't worry, tomorrow's another day. Just smile. :-)

and... ((HUG)) hope it helps.

Thanks for the hug! I already feel better.

Congrats on the ability to multi-think, Yaar!! That's awesome!!

I was just aching for a photo of that. I think just infected puss ball would have been more accurate, since that's what festering slivers do. But duct tape, hmm. Interesting!

It's pretty cool, being able to multi-think.

I can think of more than one thing in the same week..

I'm not vain enough to think the 'protected blog' comment was in any small way about my blog, but it's back anyway just in case :)

Your blog is one of the few I could bare to read whilst on holiday as it is the exact opposite of a 'moaning old man'.

I'm looking forward to looking at your pictures whilst drinking a nice cup of tea in my hammock chair tomorrow morning x

Oops,.. no it wasn't really about you, although come to think about it,.. It was more about things always changing and me not keeping up and turning into an angry old man with medical conditions. :)

I realize people have reasons to leave blogging or locking them. I've thought about both of those things myself believe me.

Thanks for taking me along on holiday! Bonus!
